Run For The Horses 5K

Dates: Friday, October 06, 2017 - 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM
Event Description:

Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center (MMSC), a non-profit equine adoption organization hailed as the “Gold Standard of Thoroughbred Reschooling” located in the Kentucky Horse Park, will be hosting the Run for the Horses on Friday, October 6 at 6 p.m. Proceeds will benefit MMSC’s initiatives to find second careers and future homes for former racehorses.

The course will be set throughout the scenic Kentucky Horse Park beginning at the MMSC campus during the Thoroughbred Makeover, the Retired Racehorse Project’s annual showcase for off the track Thoroughbreds. The Run for the Horses 5K will be presented by RaceRise who will provide chip timing for each runner. Awards will be given for overall and specific age groups. In addition, a special prize will be awarded in a challenge to anyone who can “Catch Tik,” a remarkable horseman who won the 2015 Thoroughbred Makeover Freestyle and placed fourth in the hotly contested Rolex Kentucky 5K in April of 2016.

“Our hope is that all who care about horses will come out and participate by running or walking in the Run for the Horses,” said MMSC director Susanna Thomas.  “Thoroughbreds have run their legs off for us.  Indeed, in addition to providing enjoyment with the sport of racing, our local economy is dependent on them, and every one of us in Lexington owes our beautiful bucolic lifestyle totally to them.  Let us now show our appreciation for all of this by striding out for them on Friday!” Register online here: www.RunForTheHorses5K.org

Packet pickup will be Friday, October 6 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center office.
